2. Bank508

Creeping closer to the top spot this month, Bank508 have a diverse range of items but their work with light is what really really makes them stand out. From bokeh and particles, to neon and sunlight, there’s something in Bank508’s portfolio to suit every occasion.

Featured Item: Fire

Burn baby burn, this stock footage is hot property. Fire (on a black background) is a masterful capture – easy to get wrong when filming, so let Bank508 take the hassle out of it and use their stock footage instead. With its full HD loop, it’s quite mesmerising…

1. Pressmaster

It seems you can’t get enough of Pressmaster: they’re this month’s number one once again. Pressmaster are creative pros who make conceptual stock imagery, footage and music. Their offering ranges from corporate footage, through to family scenes and even cookery.

Featured Item: Surf Is Up

Surf’s up with this slow-motion stock video of a woman surfing. The piece starts quite close and slowly pulls out to reveal the subject and more of the surroundings. It’s the perfect video for outdoor/sports centres or those wanting to show fun, athletic activities.
